Defendant's conviction for possession of methamphetamine reversed
Defendant was convicted of 5th degree possession of methamphetamine and possession of paraphernalia in the County of Nobles, State of Minnesota. Defendant was a back seat passenger in a minivan in which methamphetamine and paraphernalia were found. The Minnesota Court of Appeals in a rare case, reversed defendant's conviction based upon circumstantial evidence on the grounds that these circumstances did not exclude a reasonable inference that the methamphetamine and pipe were in the minivan before defendant entered and that he did not know they were there. Reversed.
State v. Hinds, A18-1267, Nobles County.
Minnesota Criminal Defense Lawyer Lynne Torgerson was not attorney of record in this case.
